Computer Wargaming / Re: Total Warhammer tips and tricks anyone?

I had the same experience with "Pike and shoot ". A game with an outstanding optic. But even though i"ve playd in the lowest difficulty level i have lost almost every game. I have studyd the manual againe and againe, tryd different tactics but no chance. Sometimes i really wonder whats going on in the minds of some scenariomakers. Maybe they have an competition, who can make the hardest scenario. As i asked an scenariomaker from pike and shoot why the scenarios are so extremely hard he anwered" If a scenario isnt hard you dont need to play."
I think in the lowest difficulty level every scenario should be winnable even if the player is a beginner to motivate him to stay in the game. After learning the game he can raise the level step by step.
For my part i"m totally frustrated from pike and shoot and dont touch it anymore.
Is that the same story I saw that said the amateurs thought they were participating in a prank show?  They didn't know what they were doing was going to kill the man.  At least that's what I read.

Yup. But I can hardly believe the prank alibi.

something I posted over at FB

Something I've noticed about Trump's cabinet picks:
The military guys (Mattis, Kelley, now McMaster) have people coming out of the woodwork to say positive things about them, and rarely are you hearing many negatives.
The non-military folks (DeVos, Tillerson, Sessions, etc) don't have any sort of ringing endorsements, or any endorsements at all, from people who have worked with them, for them, near them, or wishing smelling distance of them.
Now, some of that might be self-selection bias, since I have a military background, and my circle of friends includes a lot of current and former uniforms.
I worked for McMaster briefly, know people that worked for Mattis and Kelley, and a *bunch* that worked for McMaster, including on deployment. And no one has anything bad to say.
I don't know anyone (that I know of) that worked for Ben Carson, or Rex Tillerson, or Betsey DeVos (does she have anyone besides maids working for her?) but you'd think along the way someone, SOMEWHERE would've made a FB post or a blog post, or a Snopes-confirmed email about the positive aspects of having worked with or worked for one of these guys.
Help me out here people...
Both plots succeed and we blow up a bus full of nuns, orphans, and kittens or something.  End result is a big boost in funding to the Jihadis and a loss of prestige for the Americans.

Trump's replacement for Flynn

I worked (briefly) for McMaster in '97-'98 on my way out of active duty.  Solid dude.  Remarkably humble at the time.  Bison worked for him in Iraq.  I know several other people that have worked for/with him over the years, and they all love him.
